North Carolina Disabled Child SSDI & SSI Lawyers

Dedicated Representation for Your Child & Your Family

Children younger than 18 who have a disability may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Adults who have been disabled since childhood may also qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits in addition to SSI benefits.

At Lanier Law Group, we understand that raising a child with a disability can present a financial challenge for your family. Depending on your child’s disability, however, he or she may qualify for benefits under the SSI program. Our dedicated North Carolina disabled child Social Security disability lawyers work with clients throughout the state; we can answer your questions and review your situation to determine the best course of action for you.

Determining SSI Eligibility for Disabled Children

If you are seeking SSI on behalf of a disabled child in North Carolina or need help understanding how Social Security disability works, our attorneys can offer you comprehensive support. Our lawyers can also assist you in filing an appeal if your claim for SSI benefits for your disabled child has been denied.

If you are seeking Supplemental Security Income for your disabled child, he or she must meet the following requirements established by the Social Security Administration (SSA):

  • Your child must have a physical or mental condition, or a combination of conditions, which result in “marked and severe functional limitations.” This means that the condition must seriously limit your child’s activities.
  • Your child’s condition must be disabling, or be expected to be disabling, for at least 12 months, or must be expected to result in death.
  • If your child is blind, he or she will need to meet the same requirements for SSI as an adult who is blind.

Before receiving SSI, you must provide information to the SSA, including medical records and documentation that your child’s disability affects his or her daily activities. Our legal team is sympathetic to your situation, and we are prepared to work diligently to help you obtain the benefits you need to take care of your child. Our North Carolina SSD lawyers are dedicated to fighting to help disabled clients receive their benefits, whether through filing initial claims or appealing denied claims.

Put a Heavyweight in Your Corner

Since 1997, disabled residents and the families of disabled children in North Carolina have trusted Lanier Law Group to fight for their right to benefits. If your child is disabled, our legal team can assist you in filing a claim for SSI.

We offer all our legal services on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are no upfront costs for you. Instead, our attorneys only collect fees if and when they recover compensation in your case. In the unlikely event that we are not successful, you do not owe us anything.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
